New deer hunting regulations to begin in Ohio

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - State officials say changes to Ohio's white-tailed deer hunting regulations taking effect this month as the first deer season begins will provide more prime hunting time.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources' regulations for 2013-2014 begin Sept. 28 with the start of white-tailed deer archery season. They include extended hunting hours during gun and muzzleloader seasons and county bag-time limits. They also include changes to deer permit use and an antlerless-only muzzleloader season.

Director James Zehringer says 30 minutes of prime hunting time after sunset was added to every day of the deer gun and muzzleloader hunting seasons this year.

Deer hunting hours are 30 minutes before sunrise to 30 minutes past sunset for all deer seasons.

All deer hunters must have a valid Ohio hunting license and deer permit.
